Electra sidestand.

Posted by Ian Easton at April 12. 2017

My newly rebuilt Electra is in need of a sidestand. Does anyone have a spare they would like to sell or know of another that would fit. I know the club has new ones but I don't want to part with 129 pounds to get one. The one I have is bent and the foot has rotted off. It would be salvageable as a last resort, but I really don't want to do that.

I think the side stand was only standard on the Electra. Original side stands were an optional extra on the Jubilee and Navigator but are very rarely seen so hopefully someone might reply with some practical suggestions.

After 6 months of hoping (either for a stand to come up for sale or a 'practical solution') I eventually gave up and forked out 129 quid plus the cost of a longer stud, plus postage, to the NOCShop. My lower back will, I'm sure, thank me, even if my wallet won't.

I have a non-original side stand on the Standard Navigator fitted to the bottom bolt of the front down tube as original but I have forgotten what it came from - almost certainly from some Japanese machine.  I bought it at some auto jumble but I then fabricated my own mounting bracket to make it fit the Navigator - so it's simple enough to do with a bit of chopping and welding.

Ian's best bet in my opinion is to recondition the original rusty stand but Electra spares might be easier to come by in the USA.

Well, I started on fixing the stand I have. I got it straightened so now I just have to fabricate a new foot and weld it on.
